On July 9, 2012, the Generic Drug User Fee Amendments of 2012 (GDUFA) was signed into law by the President of the United States of America. GDUFA was designed to speed the delivery of safe, effective, and high-quality generic drugs to the public. This program will bring greater predictability and timeliness to the review of generic drug applications. GDUFA is based on an agreement negotiated by FDA and representatives of the generic drug industry.
